This is the fastest and biggest track that can be found in the NASCAR circuit. Drivers will be attempting to stay up front and they have had some accidents and the drivers are trying to avoid the “big one.”

Talladega Superspeedway opened in 1969 and at 2.66 miles, it is the largest track in NASCAR. It is banked at 33 degrees in Turns 1 and 2, 32.4 degrees in Turn 3, 32.5 degrees in Turn 4, 16.5 degrees through the tri-oval and three degrees down the backs straight away, and it is one of two tracks in NASCAR to use restrictor plates, which limits how fast cars can go. This means drivers draft around in packs, which can lead to the “Big One”, a major accident that takes out multiple cars. While a lot of drivers do not like Talladega because it is essentially a lottery, many fans love the excitement of Talladega. Starting position does not matter much at Talladega, where six of the last 10 winners in the spring and the fall have started 10th or higher on the grid. Most drivers just try to survive until the end, and then it is everyone for themselves.

Joey Logano is the best restrictor plate driver in NASCAR and is the driver to beat. Two of the last three races at Talladega have been won by Logano and he has the second best average in finishing in the last eight Superspeedway races. Look for Joey Logano to end in the winners’ circle.

Brad Keselowski will threaten him as he has won this race three times and will be trying to defend his crown. He has a 15 place average finish her and is a hot racer by having two wins and in fifth place in the points standings.

Of course, Dale Earnhardt Jr is no stranger to this track as he last won in 2015 at Talladega. He currently has and 18 average finish of 18 at the track and is in need of a win. He hasn’t been able to get going and it would be nice for him to win one more before retirement.

Jeff Gordon has won four times at Talladega which is the most of any driver and several have won three times with both Dale Sr and Jr on that list. Gordon will certainly be a threat in this race.
